July 2024 Branch Meeting - Dr Prashant Zaveri - Orthodontic management of periodontally compromised dentition.

July 2024 Branch Meeting - Dr Prashant Zaveri - Orthodontic management of periodontally compromised dentition.

Management of periodontal disease can be challenging in patients with underlying malocclusion such as deep bite, extrusion, open contact areas and tipped teeth.  Orthodontic treatment in such situation may contribute significantly to the overall rehabilitation, both functionally and aesthetically.  These cases require close collaboration between the orthodontist and periodontist with a succinct understanding of the factors that influence periodontal tissue breakdown and appropriate biomechanics for tooth movement for long-term stability. 




Learning objectives:

The presentation will discuss current trends in dealing with malocclusions that are complicated by moderate to advanced periodontal destruction.

  • Identify 'risk factors' that compromise periodontal health during orthodontic treatment.
  • Periodontal procedures that can influence orthodontic treatment outcomes
    • Laser assisted procedures, tissue regeneration
  • Orthodontic tooth movements that can influence and improve periodontal health.
  • Protocols in orthodontic treatment planning from a periodontal perspective.
